Art classes for elementary and middle school students will be held Saturday mornings throughout the fall from 9 to 11 a.m., in the Brommer Art Center on Concordia's campus.

Area elementary and middle school students are invited to attend art classes taught by Concordia University, Nebraska’s art department Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m., in the Brommer Art Center, in Room 123, on Concordia’s campus.

The sessions are available to prekindergarten through eighth-grade students and will be taught by Concordia students majoring in art education and elementary education and overseen by professor Don Robson.

“The Concordia students enrolled in the Methods of Art Education course have been working on creating discipline-based art lesson plans, which address art history, aesthetics, constructive criticism and art making to teach to the students on Saturdays,” said Robson, Concordia’s art department chair. “Our hope is that these classes inspire young people to develop their talents and let their love for art grow.”

There are 25 seats available per session and each student is required to pay a fee of $5 for registration and supplies. Children should be dressed in clothes that can get messy.
